ADDITIONAL EVENT DAY INFORMATION
What to wear: Please wear a coloured top of your Big Dance colour group, either red, white or black. We suggest you wear pants that do not restrict movement. Please wear comfortable shoes for dancing, and bring a jumper in the event of cold weather for rehearsal (to be removed when performing).
What to bring: We will not be providing a cloakroom and ask that you keep your belongings with you during performance. You are welcome to bring a picnic basket with you. In the effort to reduce waste, please bring a water bottle and reusable cup with you and take your rubbish with you. Yarra Valley Water is providing water barrels and there is a water fountain at the park for you to refill your bottle.

Traveling to Melba Park: Melba Park is located roughly 500m from the Lilydale Train Station, less than 10 minutes’ walk. Street parking available around the park.
Access: As the event is held in a park, please expect some uneven surface. Ramp access is available at various entrances into Melba Park. There is an accessible toilet at the park and accessible parking spot on Castella St. Auslan interpreters will be interpreting the event.
Food and Beverage: : Rotary Lilydale will be firing up the barbie with sausage sizzles, hamburgers and cold drinks. Little Sugar Coffee Van will be there with ‘real coffee’. Pack the picnic basket and have one last picnic out in the park before the cold weather beckons.
